Harsco Rail has been doing business with Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) for 15 years. The relationship has just been extended by LTA’s purchase of a specialized 16-stone grinder.
The grinding machine, scheduled for delivery in 2020, was designed to accommodate electric motors and to operate on Singapore’s new Thomson-East Coast Line.
Harsco Rail President Jeswant Gill pointed to the longstanding relationship with LTA as “a key factor” in the award of the new contract. “We have developed a strong partnership and open communication with LTA over the past 15 years,” he said. “Because of that strong foundation, we were able to develop a quality product that supports the specific needs of the Singapore railway system.”
The LTA focuses on planning, designing, building and maintenance of Singapore’s land transport systems and infrastructure.
